ONADC: February Meetup – National Geographic

Feb. 21, 2013

February Meetup – National Geographic

Join us in February at National Geographic for what promises to be an informative evening.

As National Geographic celebrates 125 years of pioneering work, we will hear about how the magazine continues to reinvent itself for digital audiences, with everything from apps that showcase stunning photography to interactive graphics and maps to the overall brand billboard of the homepage.

A small group from National Geographic, led by Creative Director Bill Marr, will walk us through the thinking. And we will learn about how trying new technology has always been part of National Geographic’s unique character.

This event is $5 per person.

Thanks to Kaitlin Yarnall, the magazine’s Deputy Creative Director and ONADC friend, for organizing the program. It should be a lot of fun!


6 p.m. — Doors open

6-6:30 p.m. — Mingling and networking

6:30-7:30 p.m. — 10-minute presentations with the creative team, led by Bill Marr and Kaitlin Yarnall

7:30-8:15 p.m. — Final networking and wrap-up

We hope you will come to National Geographic for this exceptional event. The $5 entry fee covers only you; additional guests need to register separately.

See you in February!
